People who have purchased this camera describe it​ as​ a​ good camera for​ first-time users especially young teen-agers: it’s cute, it’s light, it​ easily fits into a​ pocket, it’s easy to​ use, and​ it​ seems to​ be priced with this young demographic in​ mind, coming in​ at​ around $65.00 US .​

Many users complain about the​ photo quality, stating that even in​ moderately well-lit indoor settings photos are too dark without the​ flash, but that photos come out too bright with the​ flash or​ outside on a​ bright day—sometimes to​ the​ point of​ washing out people’s faces .​
However, this problem seems to​ be more pronounced when the​ subjects photographed are close to​ the​ camera—subjects further away photograph better .​

Some users also complain that the​ LCD display is​ too dark when used indoors as​ well .​
In addition, the​ LCD goes black for​ a​ few seconds after a​ photo, which some users find frustrating .​
On a​ bright note, the​ LCD is​ considered large enough to​ be eye-friendly .​

The lack of​ a​ view finder is​ aggravating to​ users who are used to​ having this functionality in​ their digital cameras .​
Users sometimes find background objects to​ be out of​ focus .​
However, users do find it​ easy to​ upload photos from the​ camera to​ the​ computer.
Bottom line: it’s a​ good camera for​ younger first-time users who will be more excited about owning a​ pink camera than being discerning about the​ quality of​ pictures they take.
